    Default I Escaped Wisconsin

    I Escaped Wisconsin

    The technique I used was first I had to find which snow drift my vehicle was. Certainly did not want to dig out some one else’s! Second of all, if you have a diesel, the fuel probably gelled up so make sure you put in some blended fuel with #1 fuel oil. Third, find a window of opportunity to drive south—you don’t want to have your dogs in the vehicle at 20 below. Although the locals here complain that it is quite cold, yesterday it was in the 50’s and sunny and we got in 6 marks and 3 blinds with my amateur group. It is exciting because we are having 2 field trials in the Americus GA region. The water and land look perfect for training and trailing.

    PS: I see Wayne has hired a Wisconsin BB—supposed to be here this weekend. Kevin, hope you have a safe trip!

    I promise I will not ask my Wisconsin friends if spring has come, because I know the weather there is brutal.

    Not warming up very fast in Iowa either! -23 right now with a predicted high today of -10 (-35 wind chill)!
    We are ready to pull out as soon as the sun comes up. Dogs will be happy ... they get to ride in the cab!
    May not come back.

    That's just mean. Ask Wayne if he needs another BB for the winter. I'm willing to travel.

    It's really hard to be in New England and like someone who can post that right now!

    I just was asked to go train for a week down south (not as far south as Georgia), but not until March. It's going to be a looong 2 month wait!

    Have fun training and good luck at your trials!

    You are welcome to come here and train. You probably didn't realize we are only 2 hours north of Boston. Miss Becky will undoubtedly come over--that is if she has some cookies baked. Take care!
